Message from the Chair

Hello!  I'm Scott Hilton, Senior Lecturer at the University of Texas, Arlington.  I've been an SPE member since 2003, and served as Chapter Treasurer from 2015-2017.

It is my honor to serve as the Chair of the South Central Chapter. We have a very active membership here in the SC, and my goal as chair is to expand our programming to include more innovative, interactive, and localized activities.  Big things are on the horizon!

Thanks to all the dedicated artists and educators who make being in the South Central Chapter such a special priviledge. 

I encourage you all to register and attend our 2018 Chapter Conference, "Material & Meaning," Oct 4-6, 2018, at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA, where we will laissez les bon temps rouler.  And be all scholarly and artsy while doing it.

Special thanks to the 2018 SPE South Central Chapter Conference planning committee:

  • Jeremiah Ariaz, Co-Chair, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge
  • Kristine Thompson, Co-Chair, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge
  • Johanna Warwick, Co-Chair, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge
  • Lily Brooks, Co-Chair, Southeastern Louisiana University, Hammond
  • Deborah Lillie, Nichols State University, Thibodeaux, LA
  • Jonathan Traviesa, Tulane Universtiy, New Orleans, LA
